The Expendables

Even before I got a chance to see the Expendables trailer some twat was all up in my face telling me about this great action movie to kill all action movies and not only that but it stars my favourite 90’s action heroes.

After listening to this guys hum drum about the movie and seeing shots of Sly on the web with his top off working out, I must say that Testosterone treatment he is on seems like a miracle worker cause I’d like to have Sly’s physique when I’m 64,damn the Italian Stallion is old!

You have to love twitter for bringing you breaking news because no one seems to have told me that there is going to be screening in Jozi sometime tomorrow, before I get carried away let me break the movie down for you with a brief Synopsis and the cast:

An all-star cast of action-movie icons headline Sylvester Stallone's explosive action thriller about a group of hard-nosed mercenaries who are double-crossed during a treacherous mission. Approached by the shadowy Church (Bruce Willis) to overthrow tyrannical South American dictator General Gaza (David Zayas) and restore order to the troubled island country of Vilena, stoic soldier of fortune Barney Ross (Stallone) rounds up an unstoppable team that includes former SAS soldier and blade specialist Lee Christmas (Jason Statham); martial arts expert Yin (Jet Li); trigger-happy Hale Caesar (Terry Crews); and cerebral demolitions expert Toll Road (Randy Couture). Traveling to Vilena on a reconnaissance mission with his old pal Christmas, Barney meets their local contact, a cagey guerrilla fighter named Sandra (Giselle Itie), and together the trio scopes out the landscape.. It isn't long before Barney and Christmas have discovered that their actual target is not General Gaza but James Monroe (Eric Roberts), a former CIA operative who has recently gone rogue. Monroe won't be easy to get to either, because his hulking bodyguard Paine (Steve Austin) is a force to be reckoned with. When their mission is compromised, Barney and Christmas are forced to flee, leaving Sandra behind to face almost certain death. But Barney isn't the kind of soldier to abandon a mission, or a hostage, and now in order to get the job done he'll need the help of his old crew.

I’m going to do my best to make sure that I attend the screening and tell you all about it, so lets cross fingers and not just any fingers…cross your fishfingers!
